CONNECTION TO PLACE

Cog Wild acknowledges that we operate on the traditional territories of tribes of Oregon who have lived in this region since time immemorial. The people were forcibly removed from the land during a series of treaties with the United States in the 1800s. Today, Oregon’s tribal people live in urban and rural areas and on many reservations throughout the state. In the areas we operate, the primary tribes are The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. Learn more about the tribes of Oregon or of your home region at Native Land Digital.

The trails we ride are currently stewarded by the United States Forest Service (USFS) and many non profit trail work organizations including Central Oregon Trail Alliance, Oakridge Trails Alliance and Disciples of Dirt. Cog Wild pays the USFS 3% percent of revenue earned on the forest and gives back to the land and cycling community through volunteer trail work and donations of money, goods or services to organizations that increase opportunities for all people to recreate outside.

Katie was a great guide for our group of 3. One of our people had never mountain biked before and was very nervous and Katie was great with her while allowing the other two to go at our own pace!

First time mountain biking and the team at Cog Wild made it great. We were a big group but one of our tour guides stayed behind with me while I got acclimated to the trail. The bikes were in great shape and all the gear we needed was provided. We also got beverages after the trail and souvenir bottles. Worth it if you are into biking or want to try something new.

I had a great experience with Cog Wild, I called to inquire about an Alpine Trail shuttle and they returned my call very quickly, and were very easy to get signed up with over the phone even though you can sign up online too.I received helpful and timely email communication before the shuttle and then the day of our driver Brian was awesome! He was very friendly, talked about the trail and pulled out a map for us to look at. He took a lot of extra care with securing the bikes including a little foam padding here and there to ensure they didn't get banged up on the way up.The van even smelled good 😆Overall I was very impressed from beginning to end with Cog Wild and hope to do another shuttle with them soon!

Departure was on time, driver was pleasant. The shuttle is a great experience even for us Bend locals. It's not all down hill or a straight shot back so the shuttle really allows for extensive exploring of the trails. Plan on about three hours back from Wanoga or four hours from Swampy.

COG shuttles are well organized and timely. In addition to the shuttle, I had the pleasure of participating on a guided ride with Russ Risdon. Russ is an excellent and knowledgable guide who challenged and inspired me throughout the day. Five stars to Russ and COG Wild! I had a great time while visiting Bend!

My partner and I loved our experience so much last year that we came back for another lesson this year. Andy was awesome, tailoring our lesson to two slightly different levels, and teaching in a kind way that helped build confidence, skill, and knowledge. Could not recommend highly enough, and will likely be back again!

I recently had a half-day guided bike adventure with Cogwild. Pia was my guide. I was very impressed with her concern for making sure I was not only safe but that I had full knowledge of what to expect on each of the many trails we rode. This was my first time using a guide and it was worth the money to have an experienced rider show me the trails. The ride was very fun! Excellent job Pia. I was also impressed with how Sarah patiently answered my many questions prior to me booking this trip.

Half day guided mountain biking with Pia was an outstanding way to spend the afternoon after landing in Redmond at noon. She helped me improve my climbing and showed me some very fun trails! Cogwild crew was able to accommodate my arrival time to start the trip at 2:30 pm instead of the normal time. I’ll definitely hire them again next time I am in Bend!

I had the amazing good fortune to have a lesson with Russ. Russ was a great knowledgeable instructor who took the time to get to know what I wanted to get out of my lesson. Not only did he help me with those areas, but he helped me gain confidence in other skills areas that I didn’t even know I was looking for. If you have the opportunity to take a lesson with Cog Wild I know it will be a positive experience for you and will certainly improve your riding.

Did an amazing half day guided MTB tour with Erika yesterday and loved it. The tour was perfectly tailored to our skill levels, and we got a nice mix of flow, tech and great views. In addition, Erika was a great coach and gave us tips periodically as we made our way down the trail and by the end, both of us (an advanced rider and an intermediate rider) felt more comfortable on the bike and felt like we had improved a lot.Would highly recommend --- we will be back!

Shuttled two days in the Bend area back in September and Cog Wild was a great provider of shuttles up to Wanogo and Swampy Lakes. They allowed me to change my next day reservation to adjust the time so I had more flexibility. The shuttle drivers were timely and professional. When I go back to Bend, I will be using Cog Wild.

Cog Wild transported our guests to and from our wedding at Mt. Bachelor. The shuttles were very affordable, and the Cog Wild team was so friendly and flexible with accommodating people coming down the chair lift at different times at the end of the night. We had such a great time and having the shuttles helped with peace of mind and safety at the end of the night. Huge thanks to the team and the drivers!

I took the shuttle up to Alpine in Oakridge, and my group had a great experience! I generally hate shuttles because I am so prone to motion sickness on windy mountain roads, but our driver Brian was a great driver and was so kind to make sure I was feeling okay on the way up, which really meant a lot to me. He was also so helpful loading and unloading our bikes and genuinely wanted us to have a great time out there. It was a good start to a good day. Thanks cogwild!!

The seat bolts broke on my rented bike (and CW doesn't include tools, which most MTB rentals do), so I had to ride 10+ miles downhill with no seat. Cog Wild didn't seem very interested in rectifying the situation or even offering an apology, even after I filled out their Feedback Request email, which directs you to a private form instead of a public review if you want to rate less than 4 stars.

What a fantastic experience! Cog Wild was super easy to book with, and it was very straight forward with arrival, rentals, and shuttle. I consider myself an intermediate to advanced mountain bike rider, but haven’t ridden in a few years. I chose the full day guided tour (solo rider), from Mt Bachelor to Bend. 33 miles of the best alpine single track I’ve ridden! Russ was a fantastic tour guide. He taught me a few tips to help me acclimate to the fully loaded full suspension bikes, since I was used to a hardtail. I would highly recommend this tour with Cog Wild.

Love the Cogs. Oakridge is my favorite place to rip single-track, so I try to ride there whenever I can. Because of this however, I am usually solo. Cog Wild's consistent (& fairly comprehensive!) shuttle schedule lets me get in a couple big rides every day. The drivers are super, and I enjoy getting a little socializing in on the up, and sometimes on the down!

World class mountain biking right at your finger tips. I bought the season pass since I live in Eugene. Favorite trails are Moon Point and Lawler. Alpine is a good one too if you don't mind a bit of climbing. Cogwild has been a great experience so far, lots of expertise, friendly company - they are passionate about the sport and have their act together! Stoked on Stoke-ridge, Oregon and more shuttles to come!

Best shuttle experience ever. It's super convenient that they operate out of both Oakridge and Bend. All the drivers are really kind, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. The owners are lovely people with a vast depth of knowledge about both areas. They recommended fantastic trails, restaurants, and even areas beyond Bend and Oakridge.Bend has trails for every level, and they will guide you to whatever link ups are most appropriate to your skill level.If you are thinking of riding in these areas do not miss out on this spectacular experience!

I have been out with Cog Wild on their shuttles many times. This year, the price has gone up. I still wont hesitate to go, because its phenomenal riding. This year, there was a bunch of snow at the area (wanoga) we shuttled to. The driver didn't mention it. I know we should be self-sufficient, but a courteous heads-up woulda been tite.

Joined a couple of friends to shuttle in Oakridge with Cog Wild last week and it was awesome. Brian, our shuttle driver was super helpful loading and unloading our bikes, and made sure everyone knew where the trail was — and how to find your way back to the shop at the end. Can't wait to go back and ride with Cog again!

Had a great experience with Cog Wild. We rented bikes, took the shuttle, and used their guide service. The bikes were good, the shuttle left on time, and our guide Wade was great to do a full days ride with. He clearly knew the area and was a wealth of knowledge. He was a pleasure to hang out with.

We did two shuttles with Cog Wild and both were great. We did a 9 AM shuttle to the Alpine trails and then an afternoon shuttle to Dead Mountain. Alpine is an epic shuttle through the primordial forest. Beautiful, fun and challenging though not overly so. Dead Mountain is flowy up top and fast and fun on the bottom. Cog Wild are super chill and very helpful. I would definitely use them again.

My hubby and I use CogWild to shuttle every time we go to Bend to ride. All the employees are veteran riders who know the Bend Trails. They are able to make trail recommendations based on your experience and what you want to get out of the day. Because they also own bikes, you can be assured that they will treat your bike with care as they load and unload. Their whole team is super chill and professional. In all the years we have been shuttling with them, we have had nothing but great service.
